    Some Fear Bush Administration Could Become Target in 9/11 Trial - FOXNews.com

    Some Fear Bush Administration Could Become Target in 9/11 Trial
    by FOXNews.com
    Some critics say a civilian trial -- instead of a military tribunal -- for self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his accomplices could end up targeting the Bush administration and its anti-terror policies.

    The Obama administration, in deciding to try alleged Sept. 11 conspirators in a New York courtroom, has said it is setting its sights on convictions, but some critics say a civilian trial -- instead of a military tribunal -- could end up targeting the Bush administration and its anti-terror policies.

    Well if everything the Bush Admin did was legal and above board, why should they or the GOP give a crap? If they have nothing to hide, no problem

    Is that what this trial is about? Gee whiz I thought it was about the fiery deaths of 3000 innocent people in an office building. Silly me.

    Nope, thats what the Iraq war was about...no wait, that war did happen right after that attack but it has nothing to do with 9/11. My bad.

    Yep. LOL at the faux-journalistic use of "SOME." "SOME say US run by giant lizards." What propagandistic crap.

    The answer is no. The trial will prosecute those in custody we believe are linked to plotting the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    Whether they did or did not do anything wrong, they are not the ones that killed the 3000 people on 9/11. Seems you are more than happy to let those that did, walk, as long as you get 'revenge.'

    Check this out, the analysis makes sense: http://www.usmessageboard.com/1719353-post127.html

    Ask yourself these questions:

    1. Do you think these masterminds of 9-11 should pay for their crimes?

    2. If they go free how will you feel?

    3. If the united states becomes the focus of this trial, will you stand by your country or throw it under the bus like Obama did?

    At least you are honest. You don't care if they walk.
